no, i understand they are bred in with certain doe's etc. (i actually have 2 deer farms within 10 min of my house....talk about seeing a lot of big bucks). i wonder if they can alter the deer's genes while still under a microscope.

Nice Whitetail!!

Boy, I am with you on that one Hatracked. I live in the most game poor area in the U.S. I have hunted hard all of my life and consider myself to be a darn good hunter. I would never hunt in a fenced in area to kill the biggest bucks in the world. It is not hunting it is shooting,
Another thing that bothers me is all of these T.V. personalites killing these big deer and scoring their racks and telling us about their nice G2's and crap. No need doing that. A big buck speaks for itself. Besides that I could kill those deer on land that doesn't have any hunting pressure.
Then they want to tell you how to hunt! What a joke.

Sorry for venting...............

why is it that if a deer has a tag on its ear its automatically a high fenced farm area that is chargeing to kill? maybe he is being used for research. maybe he was injuried, and is being healed. or maybe a dow has tagged it. none the less he is a good looking buck and is a beautiful creature. hope he is not on a farm that is chargeing for his head but maybe. i am against it but wow did the subject change fast. the title is good looking white tale and that he is

There is a deer farm near where I live and all the deers have tags on their ears. My guess is that the law requires it for identification. To show that it is a penned animal bread in captivity and proof of ownership. I bring my girls there often to see then. Its like a sunday afternoon family thing.

I find this interesting......i totally agree taht High fence hunting is not hunting no matter how difficult it may be... it is not hunting.......but about microscopes......
it is called Genetic engeneering....it is exactly what i am studing right now......taking certain traits from one breed so to speek and putting them into another breed..from the same species.....we have been viewing it through cattle and cross breeding and getting the right traits.....for like the area the cattle live.... so that you can get a beef cow that can survive in cold climates, and still produe a lot of beef.......but anywayz i might sound confusing but it is possible...they take traits from one deer lets say a buck with a nice rack and take the allele and cross it with allele from a doe whos father might have had a nice rack also(this is about as simple as i can put it.....) but they coulld i dont know if they do but they could genetically alter deers genes and make certain traits different or better..

I would say that fellow needs to learn a little more about how to hunt public land. I do and have had pretty good success.

Well, had to go and did not get to finish my thought. What is big enough? If ou are looking for huge B&C deer on public land, they are pretty rare. When public land hunting, you must know what a good representative of that area is and adjust your expectations to a given area. A 120 class deer on Arkansas public land is a great deer. "It may be a let it walk" deer on a public place in Illinois or Iowa or some other mid-west area. Some of these 115 inch southern whitetails are tougher that some 150 class deer on more agriculteral areas.

Bottom line is you can't be eating tags looking for a booner if he is not there. Either hunt an area that has them or learn to be satisified withthe better deer in your area.
